This amazing house was build in 2006 by Arquitectura Orgánica. A young couple with two children from Mexico City who after living in a conventional home wanted to change to one integrated to nature. The goal of this project was to make it feel like an internal inhabitant of a snail, like a mollusk moving from one chamber to another, like a symbiotic dweller of a huge fossil maternal cloister.
The below architecture has been proposed by the Danish architecture firm BIG Architects and is one of the 3 designs shortlisted for the St. Petersburg Pier International Design Competition.
I kind of love how the concept has been developed with a fine-eye not only to pier activities, but also as a way to attract tourists and people and guide them along the way – and provide activities on-spot to keep them busy.
Here is a little detail about the below given design:
- Bustling activity will be channeled towards the ‘wave walk’ which undulates to dip and rise from the water,
framing a swimming pool and small holding area for kayaks, canoes and small scale boats.
- Plaza below the arch may be used for outdoor markets and as a band shell pavilion for concerts
- Concerts, Atrium climbing, inflatable balloons, boat rides, swimming and much more activities available in and out of the pier (Source: www.crispme.com/the-amazing-concept-of-st-petersburg-pier/)
